Cool! What if you made the sun graphic blue on the t-shirt? That'd look awesome. I'd get one.

royal blue (cad cut image) doesnt show up too good on a black shirt. these are black wick shirts ... not tees.

the current logo on the black shirt is actually gray.

gray logo on the royal blue shirts (i like these ones! they are the ones i make for band members and friends.)

blue on gray shirts soon; cause yeah ... the blue sun, like on the hats, does look cool.

if this stuff is popular and sells ... i'm gonna embroider full zip hoodies.

the hats are cool ... embroidered on 60% post consumer recycled hats.

Those look great! I really like the blue with the accents of white on the hats.

Grey is a good color--I dig it.

Sweet I need to get a new hoodie some time. I love hoodies. I gave away my beloved 1349 Hellfire one and I can't call my Carhartt hoodie black anymore. Its faded to an interesting purple. Smile

at least you all thought about your choice of colors and design, all I got for our band was this as a demo shirt as a first draft, which I hate but the others like, so I won't complain Smile

no, it wasnt all of us ... it was me. i just go ahead and do it, because if i didnt, it wouldnt get done. dominic fixes transmissions and shaun is a chef ... i do grafix all day. i report in with them for approval or make samples before i mass produce something. if they dont like the shirts, the stage banner or something in a promotion package, then they need to tell me, but only with a substitution idea. i'll be happy to fix this, change that or take something down, but only if they describe to me exacly what they do want.

i do my best to keep things democratic.

from someone who works in the clothing industry and has done some merch packages ..........

people dont want white tees. if this is one of those inkjet garment printers, the images look great, but that would explain the white tee ... you cant print it on red, black or blue.

i wanted to do the 40ws shirts in royal blue, but people want black ... so we reserve the royal blue garments for the band members and our crew.

the image looks cool!

if my band wanted to go down this road .........

this looks like a 3 color print. oh snap ... it may even be 4 or 5! screen printing this looks like it would be a nightmare! more color separations cost more money. simplify this artwork to 2 color (white and red, using the black of a black shirt as a strikethru ... makes 3) and look for heat transfer crystal cold peel image printing. these images look cleaner than screen printing, can be purchased in bulk by a vendor and be available to produce on demand ... making turn around time quicker, and can be printed on anything you can get on a heat press palet and wont melt at 310 degrees.

and always remember ... like anything in my business ... the more you buy, the cheaper the price breakdown per item goes. 24 shirts may cost $11 / shirt. 72 shirts may cost you $8.
